The University of Michigan is reopening a search for a full-time Director/Staff for our newly
established Biomolecular NMR Core Lab. The position is described in more detail in the link to the
job posting below, but we seek a research-oriented scientist to oversee two high-field instruments
(a brand new Bruker 800 MHz and an existing Varian 600 MHz) and two lower field instruments and to
collaborate with, train, and support diverse NMR users across the University of Michigan campus and
the region. This position requires productive biomolecular NMR experience and excellent

methodology development at NYU.
Texas Tech University recently funded a structural biology initiative to bring high field NMR to the
Lubbock campus. In support of this initiative, a postdoctoral position is available in the research
group of Prof. Benjamin Wylie in the Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry. The successful
candidate will join our effort to study the structure and dynamics of integral membrane proteins
using solid-state NMR. Further information is available upon request.
The candidate should have
an advanced degree (Ph.D.) in Chemistry, Biochemistry, Biophysics, or a related field, and a strong
background in NMR. Experience with solid-state NMR of biological systems, maintenance of
solid-state NMR hardware, and VNMRJ is desirable.
Please send a cover letter, CV, and the names
of three references to Benjamin.email@example.com.
Studies of muscle lipids and bioenergetics in aging humans Job Description
A postdoc position for “DNP-enhanced solid-state NMR” will be available from September 2013 at
the Helmholtz center Jülich/ Heinrich Heine-Universität Düsseldorf.
One of the most demanding
challenges of biomolecular NMR spectroscopy is the inherently low sensitivity. Signal enhancement by
DNP is therefore a promising alternative to gain insights into systems which otherwise could not be
investigated. We will exploit the technique to obtain structural information on complex systems
(protein aggregates, and membrane proteins in lipid bilayers) which otherwise would be inaccessible
to structural investigations. Further, the possibilities of this technique for selective enhancement
will be exploited.
The candidate should hold a PhD in Physics or Chemistry or a related field.
Basic knowledge and experience in solid-state NMR or EPR spectroscopy as well as a strong interest
in physics and structural biology is a prerequisite. Experience with DNP is highly desirable. The
applicant should be highly motivated, open for new approaches and techniques, and able to tackle
demanding challenges. As most of the systems involve collaborations with other research groups, good
communication skills are required.
The biomolecular NMR center of the Heinrich-Heine University
of Düsseldorf at the Helmholtz Research Center Jülich (Forschungszentrum Jülich) offers an
exciting and stimulating research environment. State-of-the art solid-state NMR spectrometers
operating at 600 and 800 MHz are already available, a 600 MHz DNP spectrometer will be installed in
September of 2013, and the installation of an 800 with DNP is scheduled for 2014.
will be available for 2 years with the possibility of extension.
The successful candidate will assure the technical support of the three
liquid-states NMR spectrometers of the Department of Organic Chemistry. He will operate a 500 MHz
Bruker spectrometer equipped with a helium-cooled probe and supervise the "open access" to the two
additional spectrometers (300 and 400 MHz spectrometers). He will also train the users for the
"open access" and optimise the sample changer operations.
In principle this is
technical position, but the involvement of the candidate in research projects will depend on the
competence and ability of the candidate to pursue projects in parallel to his main duties. We expect
the candidate to realise experiments such as dynamic studies, diffusion measurements, kinetic
measurements and other special but simple experiments requested by the members of the
The candidate should have good technical abilities and excellent
competences in computer programming and automation techniques. A chemistry degree is a plus but
other scientific backgrounds will be considered. The basic position is a "Classe 16" (86'000
CHF/year) but it may depend on the background and previous experience of the selected candidate. The
temporary position (starting November 2013) may evolve into a permanent
